    Apollo 14 Flown State Flag of Indiana Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, with Signed LOA. A 6.25" x 4" cloth Indiana flag that flew to the moon aboard Apollo 14 with crewmembers Alan Shepard, Stuart Roosa, and Edgar Mitchell, January 31-February 9, 1971. The design for this flag was chosen from 200+ entries in a 1916 Indiana Centennial contest. It features a gold torch inside two rows of stars against a blue field. This is the first space flown "Hoosier" flag that Heritage has had the privilege to offer. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Edgar Mitchell" on his personal letterhead, stating (in part): "This letter certifies that the accompanying 4" x 6" flag of Indiana was carried in my personal preference kit (PPK) from January 31 to February 9, 1971 during the Apollo 14 mission. Admiral Alan Shepard, Commander, Colonel Stuart Roosa, Command Module Pilot, and myself as Lunar Module Pilot, were sent to explore the Fra Mauro Highlands region of the moon on February 5-6, 1971, as the third lunar landing mission..."
